Organizations, Networks and Groups Research
The ubiquity of communication networks has changed how we acquire information, socialize with people, participate in politics, are entertained, purchase products, and engage in many other aspects of contemporary life.
We explore the massive amounts of data these networks collect to conduct complex research on large scale social issues, such as crowd-sourcing, political campaigns, international research alliances, financial networks, and more.
